My pastel of Hagerman Wildlife Refuge won the Second Award of Excellence in the 2016 PSSW National Juried Exhibition. I am honored that our show judge, Alain Piccard, selected my painting for this award.

Our juried exhibition was held at the Tower Gallery in the Convention and Visitors Bureau in Grapevine, Texas for the month of October. Our PSSW Juried Exhibition showcases the best of pastel paintings from our members and nationally known artists. Pastel is an individually expressive medium so the choices in subject matter and in the handling of the medium are extensive. Put us on your calendar for October 2017 – you will love seeing our show.

My artwork was on display for the inaugural opening of this new gallery space last year. Their focus is on expanding the interest in local art and promoting a lifestyle enhanced by gardening, nature and the environment.

I am delighted that NHG is working with me to offer ongoing watercolor and sketching classes. These are great fun as students get a chance to explore their creative side and I get the chance to share my enthusiasm for all things painting and gardening. The Facebook link on the top of the pages of my website has the most up to date information, but check here.


A boxed set of sympathy cards is now being offered by Gracefully Yours, which features images from four of my pastel paintings. I am delighted that my art was chosen for these exquisitely designed, high quality cards. Packed three each of four designs, every card has a full color interior along with comforting scripture. My art is created with great joy, so it is my hope that these cards will bring a bit of comfort to the recipients. You may order them from the Gracefully Yours website in the boxed cards section.

Haddad's Fine Arts, of Anaheim California has published posters of three of my pastel landscapes. The series was inspired by trips along the gulf coast and my fascination for the varied lush greenery along the waterways. They are 20 x 24 inch heavy weight poster. These are available from national suppliers of fine art posters.
